download : The Blind Assassin: A Novel

The Blind Assassin opens with these simple, resonant words: "Ten days after the war ended, my sister Laura drove a car off a bridge." They are spoken by Iris, whose terse account of her sister's death in 1945 is followed by an inquest report proclaiming the death accidental. But just as the reader expects to settle into Laura?s story, Atwood introduces a novel-within-a-novel. Entitled The Blind Assassin, it is a science fiction story told by two unnamed lovers who meet in dingy backstreet rooms. When we return to Iris, it is through a 1947 newspaper article announcing the discovery of a sailboat carrying the dead body of her husband, a distinguished industrialist. Brilliantly weaving together such seemingly disparate elements, Atwood creates a world of astonishing vision and unforgettable impact.

–Sally Jessy Raphael, Emmy Award-winning talk show host

“This book is a must read for smart women (and men). The author’s humorous writing style gets you up to speed painlessly on estate planning essentials–so your children have guardians, so you avoid taxes, and so your money and other assets go to the right people. Don’t have a will, trust, living will, or durable powers of attorney? Get them, immediately after reading this book.”

–Greg Karp, syndicated personal finance journalist and author of Living Rich by Spending Smart

Too many women still haven’t taken control of what will happen to their wealth and their assets. If you don’t plan, the government will decide who’ll act for you when you’re sick…who’ll manage your estate when you die…who’ll get everything you’ve worked for. Everyone needs to plan, but women face unique issues that are often ignored in “typical” discussions of estate planning. Smart Women Protect Their Assets offers the specific guidance women need to safeguard their futures and control where their assets will go. Leading estate planner Wynne A. Whitman offers smart, up-to-date, and easy-to-use advice for the scenarios millions of women will face. You’ll discover how to protect children of a previous marriage…give gifts the right way…do the easy planning that may save you nearly a million dollars…get the Living Will and Power of Attorney you simply must have…and a whole lot more. Written by a woman for women, this is a quick, focused, engaging, and practical book packed with simple checklists and “what-to-do-next” advice: information every woman can act on, right now.

* Are you risking everything?

What you could lose if you don’t start planning now

* How to choose the right estate planning instruments for your situation

Wills, trusts, and “fancier” options: Which are right for you and those you care about?

* What if you get sick and can’t act for yourself?

Biography of famous author, Judy Blume

Publisher: Chelsea House Publications

ISBN: 1604133341
120 pages
1.67 MB

Judy Blume is one of America's most popular authors of books for teens and adults. Fans of her work may not be aware, however, that this successful author was a wife and a mother before she tested her writing abilities. Blume's perseverance eventually landed this keenly observant author a publishing contract. Readers have laughed at the adventures of Peter Hatcher and his brother, Fudge, in "Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing", and preteen readers found the trials and tribulations of puberty eased by reading "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" or "Then Again, Maybe I Won't". Blume's characters convey how it truly feels to be a teenager facing doubts, fears, and anxiety about life. This new edition brings readers up to date on this active author.

download : Categories for Software Engineering

Many of Software Engineers think that this book is essential for Software Engineers, What do you think ?

This book provides a gentle introduction to category theory oriented to software engineering. Assuming only a minimum of mathematical background, this book explores the use of categorical constructions from the point of view of the methods and techniques that have been proposed for the engineering of complex software systems: object-oriented development, software architectures, logical and algebraic specification techniques, models of concurrency, inter alia. After two parts in which basic and more advanced categorical concepts and techniques are introduced, the book illustrates their application to the semantics of CommUnity ? a language for the architectural design of interactive systems.

download : British Short Fiction in the Early Nineteenth Century

Publisher: Ashgate

ISBN: 0754664139
200 pages
1.09 MB

In spite of the importance of the idea of the 'tale' within Romantic-era literature, short fiction of the period has received little attention from critics. Contextualizing British short fiction within the broader framework of early nineteenth-century print culture, Tim Killick argues that authors and publishers sought to present short fiction in book-length volumes as a way of competing with the novel as a legitimate and prestigious genre. Beginning with an overview of the development of short fiction through the late eighteenth century and analysis of the publishing conditions for the genre, including its appearance in magazines and annuals, Killick shows how Washington Irving's hugely popular collections set the stage for British writers.Subsequent chapters consider the stories and sketches of writers as diverse as Mary Russell Mitford and James Hogg, as well as didactic short fiction by authors such as Hannah More, Maria Edgeworth, and Amelia Opie. His book makes a convincing case for the evolution of short fiction into a self-conscious, intentionally modern form, with its own techniques and imperatives, separate from those of the novel.

download : Environmental Engineering: Designing a Sustainable Future

Designing a sustainable future, with Enviroment Engineering !

Environmental engineering's future seems boundless because it is based in the myriad ways in which nature solves its own engineering challenges. People have yet to design a system that pumps water 200 feet straight up toward the sky in a system that is silent, requires no mechanical pumps, and never malfunctions, yet giant sequoia trees do this every day. Environmental engineering has a distance to go to mimic nature's activities, but fortunately, nature provides endless examples of processes like the sequoias' that maximize energy conservation. Environmental engineering represents a discipline that will be required for almost all future technologies in energy conservation. Featuring full-color photographs and line illustrations, this new book shows how some engineering projects turn out to be quite complex endeavors, while a good number draw on the simplicity of natural systems by following nature's theme of 'less is more'. It also discusses the ways in which environmental engineering blends the best aspects of art and design with the sciences of physics, geology, ecology, and the chemistry of matter. Chapters include: New Directions in Civil Engineering; Designing Transit Systems; Innovations in Personal Vehicles; Sustainable Manufacturing; Energy Efficient Electronics; Ecological Landscape Design; and, Sustainable Wastewater Treatment.

download : MATLAB Guide

If You want to become a Pro user of Matlab, this ebook can be your first and best option !

‘I use the Higham brothers' MATLAB Guide as a reference for myself and my students in all my applied mathematics and computational science courses. The clarity and usefulness of their writing are major attractions for using their books. Consequently, I look forward to the very much improved second edition, as if that were possible for a much admired book. In particular, the new chapter on case studies looks quite interesting with its useful applications. In addition, new treatments of new functions and features like nested functions, ODE as well as DDE functions will be of great interest.’ Floyd B. Hanson, Ph.D., Professor of Mathematics, Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, University of Illinois at Chicago

‘MATLAB Guide is an excellent reference book for MATLAB programming. This new version of MATLAB Guide contains material on important changes introduced in MATLAB 7, including single precision arithmetic and anonymous and nested functions. The new edition also contains many more examples; readers will have the advantage of learning MATLAB by essentially looking over the shoulder of two experts. This is a book that all users, new and experienced, will find valuable.’ James Nagy, Associate Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science, Emory University

‘MATLAB Guide, Second Edition, is my new favorite MATLAB reference because it not only teaches MATLAB, it fosters a love for all things related to scientific computation. This well-written book features top notch examples, the latest MATLAB features, and offers MATLAB insights that can't be found anywhere else!’ Steven H. Frankel, Purdue University

‘The second edition of the Higham brothers' MATLAB Guide is both timely and consistent with their record for careful work. New features from MATLAB versions 13 and 14, such as name completion, anonymous and nested functions, and logical variables are described in the new edition. Appendices have been changed and reorganized to update resource and "help" directory structures …There are many new MATLAB functions, such as a fully implicit ODE integrator (ode15i) and a facility for delay differential equations (dde23). Examples have been added to the guide to illustrate these new functions. The authors have done much more than was required for a second edition, but wisely preserved the sometimes delightful examples in the first. Admittedly, their stated objective of providing a ‘compact’ reference for MATLAB has been pushed a bit by adding 100 new pages. However, edition two represents a careful update of the best MATLAB guide available.’ W. Petersen, Seminar for Applied Mathematics, ETH Zurich --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
